We’re excited to announce the ability to use app name to retrieve your apps to use in automated tests. By using the app "name" field from the storage API in the "app" capability, this approach is particularly useful if you uploaded your build to Application Storage via a CI pipeline, and you either don't know the id, or you do not wish to perform JSON parsing in order to retrieve the id.
- This feature is only available for Real Devices and NOT Emulators and Simulators.
- App names are NOT unique, therefore they will always default to the latest version.
- Currently you cannot specify the version of the app using this feature.
To read more about how to use this new capability to its full extent, please visit Using Application Storage With Automated Builds
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our support team and we’ll be glad to help you with the migration or any other issue.
